Write and Pitch Your Book So It Will Sell - ONLINE
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT & WRITING WORKSHOPS -
Many would-be authors write and pitch books that never produce the sales or visibility they'd hoped. These writers feel frustrated, never knowing why the book was rejected--wither by the publishers or the would-be readers. In this session, CEO and Publisher Annalisa Parent will pull back the curtain to show exactly what makes a successful expert book, and how you can avoid the publishing pitfalls.
“Many speakers believe they are doing the right thing when putting together a book, only to find out it's not working--but they don't know why. This talk will show them the right steps to take to avoid frustration, wasted time, and most importantly, to accelerate success.” Andi Davies, New York City
